About Us

At USCROWDFUNDING, our mission is to empower people to unite around ideas that matter to them and together make those ideas come to life. With the help of our USCROWDFUNDING community, we’re redefining entrepreneurship—shifting it from being a privilege to a right. Because every inventive idea should have its shot, and every creative entrepreneur should have their moment. Together, we can do anything.

Empower Everyone

We believe that anyone with creativity and passion should be empowered to seize their own success. To make that happen, we’re removing the barriers that creators face in bringing their projects to life and connecting entrepreneurs like you to a global audience of passionate backers. We know building something from scratch is hard, so we’ve got your back with the expert support to take your project from concept to market—and every step in between.

“USCROWDFUNDING challenges the top-down model by affording artists the opportunity to make their case directly to the public. It’s profoundly empowering.”

Tanya Shaffer


“I’ve contributed to more than 80 film campaigns on Indiegogo because real creativity comes from smaller, independent productions and crowdfunding gives me the opportunity to be involved.”

Tobias Fleischer


“My dream in life is to make the world a better place. Enabling people to raise capital using USCROWDFUNDING is my way of fulfilling that dream.”

Founded to Revolutionize Funding

When creative people work together, amazing things happen. Danae Ringelmann grew up seeing her parents struggle to get small business loans. In his spare time, Eric Schell attempted to help a Chicago theater company get funding. Slava Rubin fundraised for a cure for Myeloma, the disease that killed his father. They came together because they found a fundamental flaw in the system: for centuries, access to funding had been controlled by a select few. Your crazy, cool, genius ideas were getting stuck.

Danae, Eric, and Slava founded USCROWDFUNDING in 2008 to shift the power into your hands—to empower creative, entrepreneurial people everywhere to bring their ideas to life. We can’t wait to see what you create next.
